When to apply Bayer Grub Control in New England?

natureperson(7)May 7, 2006

Is this the time to apply the Bayer Advanced Grub Control? I understand that this product is to be put down in the spring, I believe, and then there is another Bayer grub product, the 24-Hour one, that goes down late in the summer.

Here's a Fact Sheet from UNH Coop Extension on grub control...

I just put some down today around my shed and old compost and old mulch piles (loaded with big fat crubs! and apparently that was what was attracting a skunk - he's NOT under my deck, but that's another story....) Anyway the bag said you could put it down from May through July. Rake it in then water it...

Just read the back of the bag - good instructions and info.

Thanks for the link, triciae. That was very informative.

treeskate, I haven't seen any signs of skunks tearing up my gardens yet this year, but I suppose when I do that that will be a good indication that it's time to grub-ize. The day will be coming fairly soon however.

I should clarify that raking was for soil/mulched areas. They also have rates for spreaders when applying to lawns. But it all has to be watered in - like when it is going to rain or if you want to hand water it.

I wouldn't wait much longer as the grubs are moving to the surface now.

treeskate, I have used it before, but have been trying to go organic and stopped it one year. Boy, was I sorry! I have too much yard to spend the money on Milky Spore so I've decided that the Bayer will be about the only chemical I resort to.

Thanks again. I'll have to go pick some up and get the job done.
